Last week, Daedalic #entertainment , the developers of the stealth adventure J.R.R. Tolkien video game The #LordX of The Rings: Gollum, posted an apology for the game failing to “meet the expectations” of players and devs alike. #StanleyCup… Although Gollum being one of the worst-rated games of 2023 on Metacritic is a tough L to hold, it led to a pretty wholesome Twitter thread where a bunch of game devs shared testimonials about the lessons they learned while having fun working on their… respective “worst” games.The ongoing convo among game devs was sparked by a tweet from God of War: Ragnarök senior environment artist Danni Carlone. In a quote-retweet of a Video Games Chronicle article about Gollum, Carlone shared a screenshot of

1/Tonight, for the 17th time in the last 50 years, the #StanleyCup champion returns to defend their crown. This time, the #TBLightning are going for that rare feat - a three-peat and #dynasty status.
2/Three-peats and dynasties themselves are relatively rare. Below is a tour of the dynasties from the last 50 years starting with the 1974 Oakland #Athletics completing a three-peat with a 4-1 win over the #Dodgers with this home run.
3/ In 1979, the #CanadiensMTL completed their second four-peat, winning 4-1 over the New York Rangers. #StanleyCup #Dynasty

Because the @CanadiensMTL are about to compete for the #StanleyCup here is a story of me almost getting killed before game 5 in ’93, watching the Habs win the cup in the Forum, and seeing a news van explode. #GoHabsGo 1/
So I’m a big fan, a product of my mother’s teachings who was a die hard Canadiens supporter from the moment she immigrated to Canada in the 60s and settled in @Montreal . 2/
I was 19 in 1993 and stood outside the forum in line overnight a few times to get tickets to see a some games during the run. I was lucky to snag a couple of standing room seats to game 5 in the final. 3/

THREAD: The @TBLightning are headed to the #StanleyCup final after defeating the @NYIslanders on Thursday. The 2-1 overtime victory made Tampa Bay the first team to clinch each of their 3 playoff series in OT.
When a key goal is needed in a showcase game (in OT to boot), history says @acirelli22 will come through, just like he did for the Lightning last night.
It was more than just Cirelli, of course. Here's a report card on the series.

And they’re off!

“I didn’t get to pick my walk up song...@mookiebetts gets to pick his walk up song.” Our opening keynote speaker, American Sports Executive Susan O’Malley (@1lasooz), lands on stage & immediately gets the crowd laughing. #SLCBoston
.@1lasooz dives into the 7⃣ rules she set to change the culture of the @WashWizards (formally the Washington Bullets). 🏀 "First rule: make your bed every day." #SLCBoston
"It seems ridiculous, I understand that. Motion creates motion. Get up, make things happen. If you can’t get the small things right, how are you going to get the big things right? If you’ve had an awful, terrible day, you should come home to a made bed." #SLCBoston

I don’t know much about hockey but something VERY special is happening in Vegas right now.

This is a classic sports story in the making. It shows how sports can bring healing and solidarity to a community after a horrible tragedy.
2/ In every game this season, the @GoldenKnights have honored heroes and remembered victims from the Oct. 1 shootings. I went to a playoff game a few weeks ago and witnessed the emotion first hand. It was reminiscent of sporting events after 9/11.
3/ Fans told me how this postseason run has helped the local community heal. These people have been brought together by tragedy and now are being brought closer together by hope.
